This was a nice, on the small side, museum a block or two from the main plaza. It seemed to follow chronological order starting at the creation of the universe, pre inca, and inca downstairs, but then when we went of stairs, it seemed like...More

It is good to visit this after you take a guided city tour, so you can put some images to the info you got and understand more. There are not many exhibits. We were without a guide, so I was not impressed

Visited this on a whim, as it was one of the sites included in the Boleto Turistico del Cusco (130 soles allows you to visit 14 ruins/sites around Cusco). It was worth the visit and one of the better museums in Cusco.

Our guide Johann (for Condor Travel) led our tour group through this museum and offered explanations of how the Inca building work survived Cusco's earthquakes but the later construction by the Spanish during the 300 year long colonial period did not. An eye opener for...More

Visited this place as had the tourist ticket. Some pieces were lovely and very educational with lovely displays at the ground level. However it didn't seem to transmit to some of the rooms on the first floor. It closes at 1700 so I recommend visiting...More
